I had relatives who raved about this villa after their visit two years ago, but I was completely unprepared for the spectacular beauty of the place. This villa, built along a cliff path, was built with love, care and attention to detail. From the beautiful vegetation, growing all around, to the amazing view of the sea, to the pool and... More

The most beautiful views of any place we have ever stayed!! Vincenzo's attention to detail results in a wonderful experience. Our Day Trips were well organized and very enjoyable. Our drivers were careful and considerate, especially David. There were 8 of us including our 7 and 5 yr. old grandsons. The families at the pasta factory and gelato shop were... More

An unforgettable experience in a one-of-a-kind location, carved into the side of a mountain overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Amalfi Coast. Stunning views, excellent service, and intimate tours where you are treated as if you are part of the family. I cannot say enough about our host Vincenzo who arranged for and delivered one incredible experience after another. If... More

Outstanding, spectacular and very, very special are words we have been using when asked how our trip to the Amalfi Coast was. We chose La Grotta dei Fichi, as it was recommended by friends who have stayed multiple times. It was all that we hoped it would be, and much much more. We were 2 families (5 + 4) staying... More

This review is not for La Grotta dei Fichi, as we were not able to stay there since it was booked for our desired week. In spite of this, Vincenzo offered his assistance with planning our vacation, and we accepted based on previous reviews of his services. We traveled with another family (total 4 adults and 4 children ages 7-11),... More

Photos can only begin to do justice to this marvelous place. A three-bedroom villa carved into a cliff side, it is an unforgettable location for a vacation, perfect for a large family or two or three couples. The views are as spectacular as any on the Amalfi Coast. You have the place entirely to yourselves: a pool, a dozen private... More

There is a reason the Grotta dei Fichi has only 5 star excellent ratings. The week was more than expected. Vincenzo could not do enough for us. His recommendations were all wonderful, from the private boat around Capri to spaghetti factory tour and lunch. On the last day he arranged for car service and interpreter to take us to Postiglione... More

We had a great time at la Grotta dei Fichi! Proprietor Vincenzo Tripani is a gracious host. the food is excellent (esp. his signature pizza with ricotta & lemon zest), the views are breathtaking, the history of how the villa was built is fascinating, travel to Sorrento & Positano is convenient, the accommodations are comfortable, and the wish to go...

The grotta is a spectacular place to vacation. Every room in the villa has a view of the sea. The gracious host is there to make your stay perfect, offering recommendations for activities and restaurants. He also provides a "pizza extravaganza." This is a place you will not easily forget.

A belated review of one of the most amazing vacation experiences I have had. What can I say but grazier to Vincenzo who was simply an incredible host for my family and parents. While off the beaten path, this is a surreal villa that is beyond description. Love, care and attention have been built into the cliffs above the bay... More
